MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick : Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m swatching all 22 shades of the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks for you. These liquid lipsticks are well pigmented, dry down quickly and are completely transfer-proof. These do feel very drying though so a lip primer is recommended to make the formula more forgiving on the lips.

Hope you find the swatches helpful!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna : First Impressions

 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

 

Hi everyone! Rihanna launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, a few weeks back and the beauty world can’t stop talking about it! The first batch of products were mostly complexion/face products along with a universal shade of lip gloss. I picked up a few of the products to try out (couldn’t resist all the buzz!). I placed my order directly on the Fenty Beauty website and used a mail forwarding service (ShipOutFromUSA.com) to get the products delivered from US to India.

I picked up the foundation in shade 270. Since its a fairly new brand, swatches of all the foundation shades together weren’t easy to come by so I had to make an educated guess to choose my shade. I also picked up the primer, the lip gloss and a highlighter duo. I haven’t tested the products properly yet but I wanted to share my first impressions of the products with you.

GLOSS BOMB – Universal Lip Luminizer ($18)

This comes in a universal rose-y beige shade with ultra fine shimmer and incredible shine. I do love a glossy lip and this nude shade gives a lovely juicy shine to the lips. Its not too opaque so I like using a mauve pink or deep rose lip stain underneath this to add some color. The texture is very comfortable; non-sticky and super hydrating. I was on the fence about how unique this would be (it’s a nude lip gloss after all), but there is something about it that makes me reach for it over and over. I think its the feel of the formula – it doesn’t sit in a thick, gloopy layer on the lips and instantly hydrates and softens the lips. I can see myself using this for a long time. I like the look of the packaging as well!

But since so many of you loved this on when I posted it on Instagram, I thought I would do a blog post sharing the full product list with you!

Everyuth Tulsi Turmeric Face Wash REVIEW

 

Hi, everyone! While I was growing up, Everyuth was one of those brands I was very familiar with. My mum used to religiously use the orange peel off mask every Sunday and sometimes she would let me remove the mask once it dried off. Peeling off that mask was super exciting for a 10-year old me. It’s been many years since I used Everyuth products, but I was recently sent a lovely hamper to try out, and I’ve been trying out their face washes and face packs since the past few days.

One of the products that I found myself reaching out for again and again is the Tulsi Turmeric Face Wash. The face wash is a gel-based product that comes in a transparent green tube packaging. The open flip cap shuts tightly, so there are no issues regarding spillage of the product if you decide to travel with it. I love gel-based face washes, and this is no exception. The consistency is quite thick, so a little pressure is needed to squeeze the gel out of the tube. It has a faint herbal fragrance, and it lathers well (but not too heavily).

OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue

 

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I did a blog post. I’ve been doing a lot of videos though on YouTube so in case you are not subscribed to my channel yet, click here to subscribe. Today I thought I’d share my current favorite nail polish with you, Yoga-ta Get This Blue from OPI. I picked this up from Jean-Claude Biguine Salon & Spa recently, along with a few other shades. You can get OPI online from Nykaa as well. These are priced at Rs 850 and I am so impressed with the quality.

Yoga-ta Get This Blue is a rich deep blue with fine shimmer/pearl. The formula is thin but applied very evenly and you need 2 coats for full opacity. I was a little surprised by how quickly it dried and I love LOVE the finish! These pictures were taken 3 days into the application, I think its wearing extremely well and the finish hasn’t dulled down. I am not a huge fan of blue polishes but I was a little bored of my usual nudes so I decided to try this shade. I really like how rich it looks on the nails and very pleased with the formula! Will definitely be sharing more shades from OPI soon.
